Custodial history:
The Royal Salford Hospital opened in 1827 as the Salford and Pendleton Dispensary. In 1829 permission was granted from King George IV to rename the Dispensary the Royal Salford and Pendleton Dispensary. New premises were built, and were occupied by March 1831. The first in-patients were admitted on 29 March 1845. By this time the Dispensary was called a hospital. In 1875 Pendleton Branch Dispensary opened; this closed in 1923. In 1888 the Hospital was called Salford Royal Hospital. In 1948 the Hospital came under the administration of Salford Hospital Management Committee on the establishment of the National Health Service. In 1974 the Hospital was recognised as an undergraduate teaching hospital. Salford Hospital Management Committee was succeeded by Salford Area Health Authority (Teaching) under the North Western Regional Health Authority, which in turn was succeeded by the Salford District Health Authority (Teaching) , and then Salford Health Authority. The Hospital closed in 1993.
